PA: PA 29 TRUCK (Macungie)
« on: January 18, 2020, 03:18:26 pm »
I am noting to myself that the weight-restricted bridge that this route exists for is currently under construction.  The project should be complete by October 2021.

I drove through the construction area myself earlier this week. It wasn't there right at the beginning of the year the last time I'd been to that stretch of highway. I admit to some surprise that this project survived the last round of budget cuts, but I'm damn cynical about PA highway-related politics.

They have probably only done some prep work at this point since construction began on September 30, 2019.  The work will most likely fully commence in the Spring.
